The Institute for New Economic Thinking, The Centre for International Governance Innovation, and the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change host its third annual plenary conference in Berlin from April 12 to 15, 2012. The conference, entitled “Paradigm Lost: Rethinking Economics and Politics," takes place in the Axica Conference Center adjacent to the world famous Brandenburg Gate.



About 300 scholars, students, journalists, and policy makers convene in the eye of the European economic hurricane to reconsider conventional economic thinking. The challenges posed by inequality, unemployment, climate change, and global financial disarray call for new economic thinking that is open, credible, and relevant in the current world; that offers vision amid uncertainty, and that fosters cooperation where there is fragmentation.

The event is by invitation only; whether you can attend or not, you have the opportunity to watch the entire conference on our website: INET will film everything and upload it to the web along with slides and conference papers.

The conference is organized in conjunction with our partners, the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) and the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change (MCC).
